the source of the highly venerated Ganga embodies many a superior virtue, a
grandeur niche and a wider canvas of enviable character. The water gushing out
from the Himalayas at the place, where Bhagiratha did penance is actually the
very same water that flowed down from the Kamandal of Brahma, used to washing
the feet of Srimannaryana, when he measured the world with the gargantuan feet
during his Vamanavatar, incarnated to send Bali Chakravarthi to nether world.
And it was let fall from the Maheswara's jata. So, before descent to the mortal
world, the water has pious associations with the Trio. A deep peep is a
necessity at this stage.
the soulful prayers of Mrikandu Maharshi, Lord Srimannarayana gave to the sage,
the darsan of the self same cosmic form, he assumed to measure the universes he
got from Bali Chakravarthi as gift. So enchanting and gigantic was the form that
Brahma made abhishekam to his enormous feet with water from his Kamandal. Its
flow from heaven to earthy was stopped by Siva by arresting it in his jata.
